ESPN.com's Power Rankings
This week's rankings were determined by a poll of ESPN.com's NFL staff: writers John Clayton, Len Pasquarelli, Michael Smith, NFL Insider Jeremy Green, Scouts Inc., and ESPN.com NFL editors Peter Lawrence-Riddell and James C. Black.

The Colts remained in the top spot for the 15th straight week, but just barely. The Seahawks grabbed first-place votes for the first time this year and are right behind Indianapolis.

The Broncos held on at No. 3, while the Patriots jumped up to No. 4 after their fourth straight win. The Bears made a big move, going from No. 9 to No. 5. Apparently, the rankers feel more comfortable with Rex Grossman leading the way in Chicago. The Steelers also moved up (from No. 10 to No. 7) with their third straight convincing win.

At the other end of the rankings, the Texans returned to their familiar spot at No. 32, where they are sure to remain if they lose their finale to the 49ers.

On to the rankings. Also, you can rank the teams yourself with SportsNation's NFL Power Rankings.
